Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
For the past 20+ years, I have specialized in the field of fertility. Following the American Society for Reproductive Medicine Guidelines, I am available for face-to-face counseling sessions, phone and video-conference consultations. I assist intended parents as they explore their experiences and options for completing their families. I screen egg donor and gestational carrier candidates for private matches, agencies and physicians, as well as stay involved with matches through 2 months post delivery, ensuring the process will transpire smoothly with clear communication and realistic expectations for all.
